Regina’s renewable energy, energy efficiency and net-zero building sectors represent significant opportunities in terms of local job creation, economic diversification and growth. These sectors are critical to building a thriving, more inclusive and sustainable economy. This report is the result of a virtual gathering of 35 local leaders in December 2020. Representing a diversity of sectors including business, economic development, industry associations, trades, economic development, municipal leadership and policy, participants identified ways to advance Regina’s local energy efficiency, net-zero building and renewable energy sectors. The report recommends four significant areas of opportunity for advancing Regina’s renewable energy, energy efficiency and net-zero building sectors.

This report explores how Regina can take the lived experiences of people experiencing marginalization into account to build a more just, equitable and sustainable city.
